I LIVERPOOL AND MR. LEVER. I In the Chancery Division of the High Court, on the 7th inst., before Mr. Justice Warrington, an action was tried in which Mr. W. H. Lever, of Port Sunlight, sought to enforce against the Liverpool Corporation specific performance of the award of an arbitrator, giving to the plain- tiff E138,449 as purchase money and compen- sation for the acquisition of some 1,850 acres: of land at Rivington, in Lancashire, required by the defendants for the extension of their water undertaking. The defendants, who had offered C-40,000 for the land, had declined to, proceed with the completion of the purchase; and they now pleaded that the umpire was ill and incapable when he made the award, and that the award was in excess of his jurisdiction. His Lordship, in giving judgment for the plaintiff, expressed surprise that the defendants should have put forward the plea as to the umpire's incapacity. He made the usual order for specific perform- ance, and gave the plaintiff the costs of th action and of the arbitration.
